You can go get some VHT nightshade for like 25 or so a can, and do it yourself.
Just be careful to not go to dark or spray uneven and you will be fine.

just remove the tail lights, clean them and spray. if you want after applying the first coat or so lightly sand it and spray again.
the stuff comes in an aerosol can.

Anyone that carries VHT products should be able to get Niteshades, they'll probably have to order it though, as I don't think they have it in stock. I bought a can from O'Reily's a while ago. Took 2-3 days to get it into the shop. About $11/can. You can also try ebay.
